x509 manual

Dmitry Belyavsky-3
Hello,

can anybody clarify what for the abbreviations AVA and RDN stand for?

============
sep_comma_plus, sep_comma_plus_space, sep_semi_plus_space, sep_multiline
These options determine the field separators. The first character is between RDNs and the second between multiple AVAs (multiple AVAs are very rare and their use is discouraged). The options ending in "space" additionally place a space after the separator to make it more readable. The sep_multiline uses a linefeed character for the RDN separator and a spaced + for the AVA separator. It also indents the fields by four characters. If no field separator is specified then sep_comma_plus_space is used by default.
=============

Thank you!

RDN == Relative Distinguised Name
AVA == Attribute Value Assertion

An RDN consists of an unordered set of AVAs (but most frequently an RDN
is made up of exactly one AVA, e.g. CN = "John"). A Distinguished Name
(DN) is made up of a sequence of RDNs.

That man page could probably do with some work to reduce the jargon.

I'll submit a pull request.
